The Olander Company, Inc. is now ISO-Certified

Fastener distributor The Olander Company, Inc. has confirmed last month that they are now certified by ISO, the International Organization for Standardization, as meeting the high standards for quality outlined in their ISO 9001:2015 edition.

When serving industries like medical technology, semiconductor manufacturing, and automotive and aerospace engineering, a meticulous quality management system is key. Olander’s internal processes focus on continuous improvement and thorough documentation. “Our policy is that Olander meets or exceeds our customer’s requirements with quality products at competitive prices, through our Quality Management System (QMS) and continuous improvement process,” says Richard Thiedt, Operations and Quality Manager at Olander, who oversaw the auditing and certification process. “We’re glad to finally be certified,” he continued. “It has always been a priority for us at Olander to be excellent corporate partner to our customers, and they’ll now have the additional assurance of our ISO certification. We stand by our products and services, and constantly work to improve.” 

ISO quality standards evolve and are updated periodically; Olander’s certification indicates that the company will update its systems in accordance with the standard when necessary. For now, they continue to forge ahead with their already-successful 2022 business year: “ISO 9001:2015 Certification is not us trying to ‘check a box’ because it is the latest initiative or corporate fad,” remarks David Byrne, CEO. “Olander is embracing the spirit of ISO and continuous improvement because we believe it will make us a better company, and improve the quality of the products and services we offer our customers, in the long run. We are excited about our future. And I am so grateful for the dedication of our Quality Team and all of our employees, who did the hard work to earn this certification.”

The Sunnyvale-based company celebrates its 60th anniversary in 2022.
